By now I am sure most of you are aware of the four-alarm fire Wednesday evening that devastated Frager's Hardware -- a pillar of Capitol Hill for more than 90 years. If you're not then there is plenty of coverage in the Washington Post and The Hill is Home.
“We’ll come back bigger and better and stronger,” said John Weintraub, who runs the store.
I sure hope so and I want to help. That's why I'm sending this email directing you to a couple different options to make a donation to help Frager's recover. GiveForward has a Frager's campaign up and running that has already collected more than $25,000 toward a $100,000 goal. The Hill is Home points readers to two not-for-profit organizations, Capitol Hill Community Foundation and Celebrate Capitol Hill that are accepting donations for the victims of the Frager’s Hardware Fire.
Whatever avenue you choose, I hope you decide to donate, whether it's money or time or simply good thoughts. We all count on Frager's on a regular basis and right now they could really use us.
